Amazon will open orders for their timed Palutena amiibo sale very soon. North American amiibo collectors will shortly be able to purchase Kid Icarus’ Goddess of Light exclusively from the online retailer at 2pm PT or 5pm ET. So make sure you get your details at the ready and are logged into your account to secure your order. With many amiibo still hotly sought after across a number of regions, Palutena – although “ample” in quantity – is guaranteed to sell quickly, with Amazon stating the following below. You can purchase Palutena at the link here, when the event goes live.
Purchases are limited to 1 per customer, and 1-Click Ordering will be disabled for this item. Please make sure you’ve updated your credit card and shipping information to help you move quickly through the checkout process.
We have ample quantities of this amiibo, but we still expect to sell out. Please act quickly at 2:00 p.m. PT on Friday for your best chance at buying Palutena. Demand is expected to be very high, and there’s no guarantee that she will remain in stock for long.
Earlier today, the Nintendo UK store updated its amiibo selection and added the likes of Shulk, Rosalina and Luma and Meta Knight back into their stocked ranks. Though the above mentioned have long since sold out, a number of characters are still available for purchase, including Palutena.
Amazon has announced today what many have feared, Palutena is exclusive to the online retailer. Many of you are understandably fed up with certain amiibo only being available at certain retailers and it doesn’t seem as if this trend is going to go away. However, I’m sure most of you have Amazon accounts so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
Wednesday is a day that bargain hunters are looking forward to as Amazon is holding the Amazon Prime Days Deal. The event in happening all over the globe including the United Kingdom and the United States. For the UK it would appear as though you will be able to get your hands on a reduced New Super Mario Bros U Wii U 32gb Bundle with The Wonderful 101 and New Super Mario Bros: 2 3DS Bundle with Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros. Prices for these items have yet to be announced, but we can assume there will be a decent discount for both.
While many people were excited about the coyly announced Amazon amiibo surprise (hinted at over the weekend), Amazon has chosen to delay the news to tomorrow (Tuesday, July 14th) because of the untimely death of Satoru Iwata. News comes by way of official Reddit Amazon representative, /u/AmazonJosh who posted the following:
Hey everyone. I know how excited you are for what we have in store, but my team just had a discussion, and out of respect for Satoru Iwata, we’re going to be delaying our announcement by one day. Iwata was a visionary that had a near-immeasurable impact on the industry as a whole, and we didn’t want to simply ignore that and push forward without acknowledging. RIP Satoru Iwata.
This tasteful move falls in line with Nintendo’s current policy, forgoing any social media posts in remembrance of industry titan who sadly passed. For many who don’t remember, Iwata was the person at Nintendo who first conceived of amiibo and placed the idea in motion.
In easily the biggest amiibo mystery of the day, Amazon has hinted a Monday surprise for amiibo fans… possibly involving a rooster. Today on the amiibo subreddit (/r/amiibo), an Amazon verified user posted a vague thread regarding a Monday surprise. The post is titled “No, Esteban! Not until Monday!” Attached is a picture of a rooster with a tied beak with amiibo blurred in the background (seen above). Literally no one knows what this means… do you?
If you have been anxiously awaiting Gravity Falls: Legends of the Gnome Gemulets (which was only announced this week), Amazon has put up a listing for the game as well as allowed pre-orders to roll in.

While Amazon is known to put up place holder dates to act as release dates, the fact that this does not end on an even date lends credit to the believe that it will be releasing soon. Are you excited to enter Gravity Falls?
